Building Lifelong Relationships
Our dentists specialize in the unique dental needs of patients of every age. Caring for our patients at every stage of their development allows us to fully understand the growth of their teeth and gums. Establishing lasting relationships with patients also helps us make better preventive dental care recommendations based on lifestyle and preference.
Young Patients’ Dental Care
We’re dedicated to making dental care a positive experience for our younger patients. It is important that they feel comfortable while we inspect emerging teeth and look for cavities. We strive to educate our young patients on how to properly care for their teeth, teaching them the proper techniques for brushing and flossing, as well as the importance of regular dental checkups.
In addition, at a young age, children need adequate fluoride to build strong adult teeth. Our dentists can provide supplemental fluoride using in-office treatments, special toothpaste, and more.
Dental Care for Senior Patients
We offer dental implants, dentures, bridges, and more to our senior patients based on their unique dental needs. Older patients can face greater risks of conditions such as gum disease, tooth loss, and bone recession. Oftentimes, medical conditions experienced later in life will require medicines that affect oral health.
Our dentists take all these factors and more into account to treat patients and make recommendations for better at-home care.

Frequently Asked Questions
Yes! Even if you take great care of your oral hygiene, there are hard-to-reach spots that are easily overlooked. By visiting a dental professional at least once every six months, they can provide you with regular dental exams and teeth cleanings along with checking for signs of underlying issues. Your dentist will encourage you and your child to develop healthy oral hygiene habits at home so that everyone can have healthy teeth for years.
Your child’s dentist will do everything they can to provide a stress-free and comfortable environment. Some may even have toys, books, or other forms of entertainment ready for them in their waiting room.
Most dentists know that a friendly personality and relaxed demeanor can go a long way in helping your child not be afraid of the dentist. This becomes especially important when they’re trying to build consistent oral hygiene habits.
The best way to improve your oral health is by maintaining a proper oral hygiene routine. Brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing daily, and rinsing between meals can help set your smile up for success. Other ways to support your smile include:
- Use a soft-bristled toothbrush
- Buy oral care products that have fluoride
- Limit your intake of sugary and acidic foods
- Eat foods that won’t stain your teeth
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends that every child receives a dental checkup when their first tooth erupts or no later than their first birthday. The sooner your child receives dental care, the more likely they’ll have a healthy smile that’ll continue well into their adulthood. It’ll also make them more comfortable visiting the dentist over time.
